Primary Care Cardio-Renal-Metabolic Service

Type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) is a complex condition to manage. When T2DM is not well managed, it is associated with considerable morbidity and serious complications, including heart disease, stroke, diabetic retinopathy, kidney disease and amputation—over time leading to disability and premature mortality.

The Primary Care Cardio-Renal-Metabolic (PCCRM) Service provides Specialist-led clinical reviews for T2DM patients with an emphasis on lifestyle changes and medicines optimisation for anti-hypertensives, cholesterol management and diabetic drugs with the aim of reducing HbA1c, future cardiovascular events and mortality, weight, and blood pressure.



Primary Care Secondary Prevention Service

The Primary Care Secondary Prevention Service is a Consultant Cardiologist-led Cardiovascular service to help achieve QOF and NICE guidelines and improve Patient Outcomes.


The NHS Long-term Plan identifies improving the management of cardiovascular disease (CVD) as a top priority. CVD is one of the main causes of death and disability in the UK. Lifestyle changes such as change in diet, reduction in alcohol, cessation of smoking, daily exercise and weight loss may help reduce patients’ CVD risk. There are also a range of medications available to assist in reducing an individuals CVD risk. Ensuring patients are informed about their lifestyle choices and treatment options is an important part of reducing the risk of CVD events.



Primary Care Diabetic Nephropathy Service

The Primary Care Diabetic Nephropathy Service is a Specialist-led service to help achieve QOF and NICE guidelines and improve Patient Outcomes.

  • The management of diabetic nephropathy is a major clinical and societal issue because of its widespread prevalence, and massive health and financial burden;
  • Patients with advanced diabetic nephropathy can have a poor prognosis in terms of kidney function and a high risk of atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease
  • Sodium–glucose cotransporter 2 (SGLT2) inhibitors have been receiving a great deal of attention owing to their protective effects on the kidney and atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease;
  • The first step in treating diabetic nephropathy is to treat and control diabetes and, if needed, high blood pressure (hypertension). With good management of blood sugar and hypertension, you can prevent or delay kidney dysfunction and other complications.



Primary Care Metabolic Surgery

The Primary Care Metabolic Surgery (PCMS) Service aims to identify appropriate patients suitable for weight loss management which could lead to metabolic surgery. Focusing on patients who are diabetic with uncontrolled hyperglycaemia and severely obese, patients are supported through Tier 2, Tier 3 and Tier 4 as appropriate.
